Growler @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Black pour with a khaki head. Lots of chocolate and coffee on the nose. Some vanilla, burnt sugar, and a bit of caramel. Nice spiciness from the coffee.

Pours a rich burnt wood black with a fizzy dark tan head. Lots of coffee in the nose with a rich chocolaty nose and some molasses. Rich coffee flavor and smooth body with a touch of alcohol. A touch of tiramisu as well. Medium full body with a touch of alcohol.

hopscotch (9162) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2014
Growler... Motor oil-black with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The aroma is a blend of peat smoke, dark-roast coffee grounds and burnt malts. Full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Sweeter than the base beer, this treatment provides a mixture of brownies, deeply-roasted coffee beans, fudge and charcoal. Lengthy, scorched, bittersweet, mocha finish. Growler courtesy of biggsbowler!

50belair (2240) - Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Growler courtesy of Randall. Dark brown pour with a mocha head. All kinds of coffee aromas. Milder roasted malt, caramel, and bakers chocolate notes as compared to the base beer. A little less complex with bold black coffee highlights. Decent body and mouthfeel. Personally I prefer the base beer to this variant.

ReggieDunlap (3076) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Pours black with a thin mocha head. Aroma has outstanding roasty coffee. Flavor follows suit but is a little too coffe bitter for me...id like some sweetness in there. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a lingering bitter coffee finish.

vyvvy (3996) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Sampled at the RBSG14 Grand Tasting - Pours dark brown with an orange head. The aroma has coffee, roastiness, nuts, cream and vanilla. It has a medium / full body with semi-sharp carbonation. The taste has the flavors of the aroma is on the full / rich side of things. The finish has lots of roasty coffee, but the other flavors keep it from being overwhelming to me. Very good for the style.

NikkTwist (1624) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Draft. Pitch black pour. Strong dark roasted coffee notes. Some chocolate, liquorice and dark red fruit as well. Touch of smoke. Fairly sweet but with more than enough bitterness for balance. Big and boozy but quite sippable. Strangely enough I seem to really be feeling the caffeine in this one!
